Climate projects for people and planet

Carbon offsets with added benefits Reducing CO2 with clean water

Water4Climate projects use the power of the sun to disinfect biologically contaminated water. This leads to people in India and Bangladesh not having to boil water for safe consumption anymore. In return, not just firewood is saved but less CO2 is emitted into the atmosphere.

Program Area India & Bangladesh

This program of climate projects is focusing on vulnerable, rural communities in India and Bangladesh. The projects are developed and implemented in cooperation with existing implementation partners of HELIOZ and monitored by international certification partners.

take Climate action! Meaningful contribution for the environment

Every climate strategy journey begins with the evaluation of your footprint. Once you know how much CO2 you cause you can work on reducing and offsetting it.

Evaluate

The first goal is always to reduce existing CO2 emissions by as much as possible and making sure to create new processes in a climate neutral way. Changing the way and the frequency of commuting and travel for instance can have a huge impact.

It's a fact that we simply haven't found a way to live a zero emission life yet. So for all CO2 emissions that simply cannot be reduced away, offsetting is the way to go. Water4Climate is a meaningful way to do exactly that.

SDG contribution Reaching goals for the world

Creating lasting impact for people and planet is at the heart of the Water4Climate program. 

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership.

UN Sustainable development goals Goals for the world

The United Nations brought the Sustainable Development Goals to life to provide a roadmap for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future. 

In September 2015, the 193 UN member states met at the United Nations headquarters in New York with one purpose – to improve the state of the world and humanity. A total of 17 Sustainable Development Goals for the world were developed.

Areas such as the economy, social affairs, climate, and ecology, but also human rights, the rule of law, good governance, peace, and security were scrutinized and given targets.

It is the responsibility of states, governments, companies, and individuals to do their utmost to achieve these goals. HELIOZ actively contributes to 9 SDGs by implementing its own climate projects:

 
SDGs
  • Convert water treatment in households by introducing solar water disinfection (SODIS) in combination with WADI as an effective, sustainable, cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly method (SDG 6 & 13).
  • Provide safe drinking water for more than 100,000 people (SDG 6).
  • Raise awareness of water disinfection, hygiene, and sanitation (WASH) interventions in rural communities in Asia and Africa (SDG 6).
  • Reduce family health expenditure, saving 27 USD in household income per year in India (SDG 1).
  • Strengthen the role of women as the main providers of clean drinking water (SDG 5).
  • Reduce indoor air pollution and CO2 emissions (SDG 13).
  • Prevent the occurrence of water-borne diseases. Reduction of 80 % e.g. in Uganda (SDG 3).
  • Protect local forests (SDG 13 & 15).
  • Increase school attendance (up to 40 %) and working days (up to 60 %) due to reduced inability to work (SDG 1, 4 & 10).
  • Form and strengthen international partnerships for climate activities (SDG 17).
